east war. the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu has rejected that proposal. mr. obama called for the leader of syria to embrace democracy or move aside. steve handelsmans us with more from capitol hill with more on the president's response with the uprising sweeping the world. >> thanks. >> good afternoon. osama bin laden in his latest and probably last audiotape just released, appealed to the arab masses especially the so-called arab rebels to embrace al qaeda. president obama down at the state department basically reached out to the same people. >> with arabs rising up against dick tarts, some who were backed by him and his predecessors, president obama vowed to improve america's image in the middle east and u.s. security. >> after decades of accepting the world as it is in the region, we have a chance to pursue the world as it should be. >> the arab spring uprising
overturned in tunisia and egypt. >> rebels are under attack in libya, bahrain and syria. >> the united states opposes the use of violence and repression against the people of the region. >> he slapped new sanctions on syria's leaders and intervened on libya, but obama principal number two says jobs work better than bullets. >> we think it's important to focus trade, not just aid. >> he wants u.s. loans like the ones to eastern europeans after the fall of communism. 2 billion to help egyptians and to win over other arabs. >> if you take the risks that reform entails, you will have the full support of the united states. he said israel has his full support, no compromise on security. >> but precisely because of our friendship it's important that we tell the truth.
the status kuo is unsustainable. he endorsed a key palestinian demand. >> we believe the borders of israel and palestine should be based on the 1967 lines with mutually agreed swaps. >> that will be a tough sell tomorrow when the president meets israeli prime minister net net. >> benjamin netanyahu here in d.c. is already worried that a lot of arab rebels are anti-israel and he's saying today in advance of his meeting with the president tomorrow, no way to returning to what he sees as impossible to defend 1967 borders of israel. live from capitol hill, i'm steve handelsman, news 4. doreen, back to you. >> steve, thank you. we are learning more now about the audiotape released by al qaeda overnight. it's referred to as the final message from osama bin laden. u.s. officials told nbc news that they had already heard the tape. a copy was recovered during a raid on the bin laden compound three weeks ago.
>> in it, he praises the revolutions in egypt and tunisia and does not mention the uprisings in libya and syria. the message appears to be an attempt to appear relevant although many analysts see the peaceful revolutions as a repudiation as a vehicle for political change. "meet the press" moderator david gregory joins us with thoughts about the president's remark about the middle east today as well as another very busy political week here in washington. let's start at the beginning. benjam benjam benjamin netanyahu, the israel leader is supposed to come here tomorrow if i'm not mistaken. >> yes. >> it has set up shaky ground. >> it was an icy relationship and this doesn't make it better. what the president was talking about today or it's based on 67 borders has been policy going back several administrations and this is hardly a huge deal even upon if netanyahu doesn't like it. there are things in the speech he will like. the right for israel to defend
itself, setting up a secure border. so they're going to balance those two things, but do i think it will inject condemnation and the proz sunday goes to speak to the american israeli political action committee meeting here in washington. so that the way netanyahu is setting his reaction up is going to impact the kind of low back that the president gets. >> the president has to be thinking about re-election? what is he up to coming up with a speech like that right now? >> and the implication being that jewish voters, florida will reject this. first of all, jews, historically will vote for a democrat by and large and not a lot of republicans get support from jewish voters, but the second point is again that this is consistent with what administration, republican and democrats have tried to do which is to forge a peace process based on the 67 borders and
there are illusions to what are called swaps and places like jerusalem that are so-called facts on the ground and it was that border that was envisioned. this was the president charting a course where there will be tough negotiation. they would understand that this would be the basis for how you ultimately carve a palestinian state, but there has to be an important follow-up question about security. the key, the united nations resolutions would make this a final status issue which is why i think it's getting fireworks right now. >> let's talk about domestic politics for a minute. last week, you didn't create fireworks but newt gingrich did. this week you had paul ryan on. what can we anticipate, do you think? >> newt gingrich criticized ryan and his version of how to fix medicare and that lit everything up. it has imperiled gingrich's candidacy. it has earned him nothing, but condemnation from the right. this is a huge issue in the
republican party. democrats are waiting to pounce, but this is all about budget politics and right now the two sides are talking about how they're going to get an agreement, not only on a budget, but whether they'll raise the debt sealing and it is a very polarized issue, but it will be an issue right in the middle. let's get him on and see how he can negotiate the path. >> i have to get personal. newt gingrich said you sandbagged him. how do you react to that? >> he's doing his thing. >> as he always does. >> he wants to blame -- i don't think it was the question that caused the problem. i think it was the answer. >> he does his thing, you've got to do yours. >> we'll see you sunday morning. the form cheeft international monetary fund was formally indicted in connection to a sex abuse case in new york city. the judge granted a bail request for dominique strauss-kahn. he appeared this afternoon for a bail hearing and he approved
home detention monitored by armed guards. strauss-kahn had been behind bars since saturday after he was accused of trying to rape a maid at a manhattan hotel. he resigned from his powerful position from the international monetary fund late last night. the family of a teenager in fairfax county who was killed in a traffic accident after he drank something called four loko is suing the maker of that drink. julie carey is in our newsroom now with more on the wrongful death suit that was also filed against a manassas convenience store where they bought the drink. julie? >> reporter: this drink has been nicknamed blackout in a can and with prom and graduation season here a centerville mom wants to make sure other families don't suffer the tragic loss she did. >> my hope is that these drinks that are sold in single-serving cans will be pulled off the shelves everywhere. >> reporter: centreville mother carla rupp blames four loko for her 15-year-old son's deaths. so today she and her husband
filed a wrongful death lawsuit against fusion projects, the maker of the alcohol-packed drink. >> the four loko effect is eternal for our son. >> reporter: bo rupp was an honors student at westfield high school, but last september 25th, he and some friends took four loko drinks to jiffy lube live. bo drank two xans the 24-houns container carried the alcohol equivalent of five beers along with the stimulant of four coffees. soon after, security called carla rupp to come get her son. >> reporter: carla rupp safely got her son home and then bo took off. under the influence of four loko, he lost touch with reality. bo was last seen running in and out of the traffic on pleasant valley road. he eventually sat down on the pavement and was struck by an suv, bo died the next day. after the fda cracked down last november four loko was reformulated. the stimulant dropped and the
product still packs an alcohol punch of five large beers. even worse, the fruity drink packaged like some iced advertise is aimed at teenagers. >> this product is design said as a delivery system to mask both the alcoholic taste and the impact of the alcohol so that it can be drunk quickly. >> bo's parents are also suing this manassas raceway convenience store where bo reportedly purchased the four loko. >> a statement from fusion project says we work very hard to make sure our products are consumed safely by adults over the age of 21. they add we will vigorously defend against the wrongful death lawsuit. >> we stopped by the convenience store and they are stocking the case with a newly formulated four loko. no comments from the owner of the store. >> jiel carey, thanks. they've busted an international drug operation being run out of our area. 18 people from four states, virginia, maryland, new york and
ohio are under arrest accused of distributing a drug called khat. it is a leaf containing the stimulant like cocaine, but less intense. it was run out of an arlington home of a naturalized u.s. citizen from somalia. the suspect smuggled the drug for distribution throughout the u.s. the recent heavy rains have caused flooding across the region. some trees were nearly swallowed in the swollen river. chief meteorologist doug kammerer is here to tell us what to expect in the next couple of days. is that flowing our way, doug? >> we saw the problems that the potomac created last month, almost a month ago today and this is what would happen earlier today around the georgetown area. the last time they did not put up those flood walls around the georgetown harbor and we did see a lot of flooding for those businesses and fortunately today, the flood walls are up and they're protecting that area today and the water could be very close to the same level that we saw last week. once again, definitely good news
